What defines best for you? Durability, looks, ease of use? Do you have a budget? What products do you already have? What's your level of experience? Are you looking for products to protect the paint, as well as correcting it?

Sorry for all the questions but with a bit more information folk can give you much better suggestions!

No problem at all!

My experience level is beginner, Ive only ever once went to a detailing class to learn how to machine polish.

In that case I think ease would be my best option for a beginner and I could coat the car with a wax of my choice afterwords to make it glossy!

No pads or products relating to machine polish have been purchased yet.

The car was staged 1 about a year ago by a company so I there is only slight swirles so might be ok with just stage one?

Budget would be mid level £10-20 per product

It would be helpful post some pictures of the problem areas on the car that you want to deal with, perhaps highlighted with an LED torch.

If you look at some of the posts here, you will see how before and after pictures illustrate both problem and solution. People will feel more able to offer sensible advice if they can see what needs doing.

At a guess I might start with Chemical Guys Hexlogic Pads in white and green, using some Sonax Perfect Finish polish. The white to really boost the gloss, the green for a bit more cut to take out light swirls.

However as Peter suggests, best to post more detailed pics of the specific defects so people can make more educated suggestions, particularly from those members with the most experience in machine polishing.
